Lee Allatson – 9 February 2017

By Rodrigo  //  Performances  //  No Comments

Lee Allatson is a drum set player from Leicestershire, UK, specialising in free improvisation. His early percussive years included classical tuition and a keen interest in 1970’s film soundtracks – all fused within the cultural melting pot of Caribbean, Asian and Eastern European influences provided from a Leicester city education. Moving to vocals and electronics manipulation he developed his experimental edge through free music playing with his regular trio Misterlee and in ad hoc performance opportunities alongside such luminaries as Damo Suzuki (Can), Paul Dunmall, Tim Harries, Mark Sanders and Wildbirds & Peacedrums. The drum seat has become home once again in recent years and as well as teaching percussion and recording solo drum set works, Lee has worked with Taiwanese musicians Shih-Yang Lee, Liu Fang-Yi and Zhang You-Sheng for Kandala Records, Walt Shaw, Bill Drummond, Eddie Prevost, Stuart Wilding and now regularly plays in several free improvising ensembles with, amongst others: John Russell, Bruce Coates and Christopher Hobbs. Lee also founded and runs a the South Leicestershire Improvisors Ensemble.

About The Noise Upstairs

The Noise Upstairs is an improv collective which runs a free-improv night in Manchester. The basic premise is that anyone can turn up and join in by putting their name in the hat. Names are pulled out, ensembles formed, and hearts broken.
